October update

It’s officially October and that means there’s 3 weeks of uni left…..wow. Actually, I’m aware 3 weeks is still a pretty long time and I’m gonna need all of that time to make sure this semester ends on a good note. So far the second half of the semester’s going relatively well, we’ve been given the task to produce a 5 second animation for the upcoming RMIT Communication Design event, which my exhibition design elective is currently working on and speaking of exhibition design, I’m part of the curatorial team! The role is quite daunting since I underestimated how much planning there is to be done but I’m liking the experience as we speak.

Last week I was able to stay on top of my work so I finally had time to catch up with some good friends. Decided to go to the Melbourne Show, mind you the last time I went was…I don’t know. Too long ago. We bumped into the Masterchef kitchen by the way. Oh hello there….

I don’t usually go out and shop but when I do, it’s either when the sales happen, when I have to buy gifts or when I’m overseas. Nothing beats online shopping though, good values and good variety which brings me to this photo of my  most recent purchase, the cropped trench coat. Has a distinct design and was perfect to wear at the Melb Show given that we had to battle heavy winds all day eugh!

Miniature madness

You know how it’s a hobby for some people to keep a collection of pointless things like stamps, stickers and rubber wrist bands? As soon as I saw Stéphanie Kilgast’s mini food art I rediscovered my love for collecting miniature objects. As a kid I spent an unreasonable amount of time collecting these things (and I still do!) I never realized till now. Thanks to Stephanie, I’m inspired to buy Fimo and try out some miniature food art. This shall be a great way to brush up on my dodgy crafting skills. You should definitely visit her website, blog and store here. Looking through the house I dug up a few shots of my mini collection…

White walls

Today’s exhibition design class was probably the best class I’ve ever had in uni so far. Cue the blank walls and endless rolls of vinyl, we finally get to work with color, shape and all the elements you can think of on a large scale! The aim of today is to challenge our train of thought regarding the possibility of how an exhibition space can be perceived and experienced by not only our audience, but ultimately ourselves. So the theme of today was to present colour as a vehicle for meaning and inspiration within an exhibition setting. Working collaboratively as a class, we played around with vinyl within the confines of the boring media and communication staff area. These first few photos were one of the walls we got to decorate.

This second wall was the one I was mainly working on with a few classmates, you could probably already tell that we were inspired by Matisse. Fortunately for the staff they’re gonna have to cope with our crazy creations for a while, it might be a bit too much to take in but at least the walls aren’t as boring as they were before!

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
